Since changing to a healthier style of cooking, I’ve come up with new coatings for baked fish. I use almonds, panko bread crumbs and a smidge of hot sauce to add crunchy texture with nice heat. —Amanda Flinner, Beaver, Pennsylvania

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup Louisiana-style hot sauce
  • 3/4 cup slivered almonds, chopped and toasted
  • 1/3 cup panko (Japanese) bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 tilapia fillets (4 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°. Whisk together egg and hot sauce in a shallow bowl. In a separate shallow bowl, toss almonds, bread crumbs, lemon peel and spices.
Halve fillets lengthwise; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Dip in egg mixture, then in almond mixture, patting to adhere; place on a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake until lightly browned and fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 12-15 minutes. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
